So this has been a thing since at least gen 7. The first 360 was a RROD machine, with a tiny HDD. The first PS3 was a massive George Foreman Grill with Jet Engine Turbines for a fan. My first PS4 broke on me twice due to my roommate putting it in a place with not so great ventilation. The XB1 came with Kinect and cost $500. Both the PS4 and XB1 were kinda weak at launch, leading to the mid gen refreshes of Pro/1X.
Next gen I'm not even going to get a PS5 until the 2nd model comes out. Sony doesn't have many exclusives until around the middle of the gen anyway.
Edit: Okay not all non-Nintendo consoles. PS4 was good, and I just had bad luck with mine. Xbox One on the other hand was bad because it was overpriced due to Kinect being included. Oh, and as I said in the first sentence of my original post, this has only been a thing since gen 7.Last edited by Cerebralbore101 - on 11 August 2018
